Advent Origami Boxes: Day 1

I've never had an advent calendar, but I love the idea of opening little gifts everyday. I love the idea so much, I made one for Mr. Wonderful this year. I will share more about this project tomorrow, but since today is December 1st, I wanted to share the first box with you:
Inside the box was a tiny blue paper crane and Christmas card, it said something like this:

Roses are red, this crane is blue,
I am so lucky to spend this holiday with you!

i love your numbered boxes! cute.
Once I sent a kid I knew who was turning 7 a box of 7 little presents with numbers on each one. In the card I wrote "7 for 7."
he loved it.
they had a bunch of fun kid stuff in them like a whoopee cushion and candy shaped like brains!

That's a great idea... I am having so much fun with this project. It has saved me from SAD! And it gives me something to look forward to in my day!
